    Went with a more saturated tie than the last outing. Still figuring this jacket out.

    Thank you, buddy. The shirt feels too saturated for me. Ymmv I guess.

    The shoes are leaving because they do not fit properly and never really have. I have been trying to just pretend like it's not a big deal, but it is. Part of the GG Barneys sizing fiasco.

    :mad:


    But on the plus side, I have an incoming replacement pair of GGs from Spoo to cover this shade of brown.

    :)

    Yeah, I was super excited to pick up a pair of sutor mantellassi brown suede loafers in an 8.5. Turns out they're english sized so they don't fit. To the marketplace they go!

    Sad day :/

    The Barney's fiasco was that they misrepresented the English size of the shoes they were selling. So even though everyone knew their English to size, everyone got a half size too large until they figured out what was going on. Not cool.

    @upr_crust That really is very impressive, from top to toe, I would never had thought it could have been a maiden bow tie voyage. it looks perfect and you look very much at ease.

    I may go out on a limb and say it could well be up there in terms of your top posts

    @in stitches I think thats a great combo you got there, again good from top to toe. Particularly liken the tie setting it all off. Shame about the shoes. Shame being they're too big for me!

    Thank you, Cleav. This is my first time with a bow tie with a three-piece suit - I've otherwise only worn bow ties in the summer, with summer weight two piece suits. The effect with a three-piece is very "retro", but seems to suit me (as to most modes "retro").

    I also am of an age in which I need to do things periodically, so that I can remember how to do them (including tieing a bow tie :( ).

    Well no wonder that you look so self-assured, I beg your pardon, I should have read your post more carefully.

    Nonetheless, it remains to be said that the 'retro mode' displayed here is carried off with some aplomb!

    With all best wishes to you and yours.

    I don't think a dark shirt/light sportcoat looks bad without a tie. I've seen several guys in this thread who looked great with the look. Maybe a white linen PS would've been better too.

    The guy on NCIS wears that look all the time and pulls it off.

    Texture for days. I like it all. Would prefer a slightly darker tie with all that but I think it does look very nice.
